This historic bequeathed fund is able to support Ministers who wish to study Gaelic for preaching purposes or to enable Gaelic learning projects within a parish. Church of Scotland Ministers of full-time word and sacrament can apply for funding. The fund is administered by Faith Nurture.

A total of £8000 is available from the fund each year. Applications open from 1 November 2022 and must be received by 9 January 2023 to be considered for the annual allocation of grants. Decisions will be made in late January and grants will be paid upon the submission of receipts. Applications are welcomed after this if there is any budget remaining.

A 300 word report on the impact of the work should be submitted along with receipts.
